A Good Name Is Rather To Be Chosen


In our home, over our front room window we have a name plate for each member of our growing little family. We want each cupcake to know they are special and that their name has a meaning. A blessing too!

Proverbs 22
A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.






Each time a new little one is soon to arrive, during the excitement I love to order the new name plate. To make it even more special my Lovey Dovey and I pick out the scripture to go with the new baby's name and meaning. As you can see, we have hammered a few nails on our wall. People always laugh that we still have more room up there. My sweetie and I think so too! Hehehe!!!

What a wonderful idea, unfortunately in my home the wall would be completely empty, lol !

What a lovely idea! My eye was drawn to Sophia because that's my daughter's name.

What a super fabulous idea. Now, tell me...do you make them? I named both our kids and some others in our family too --they all have common names but spelled uncommonly. So, it's hard to find anything with them spelled like I spelled them or the other moms in my family. So, I'm just wondering if you found them or made the plaques yourself!

Great idea.

My show n tell is all about Fall. Starting with the fireplace! Stop by if you can find time. Hot mulled Apple Cider is being served!
